This page was created to share some of my creations to enhance the Strat-O-Matic experience, mostly for the Card and Dice players.  I am a Strat-Veteran of almost 30 years, however returned recently from about 15 years off.  Check out my long term 1989-1990 NHL Replay if you have a chance: 1989-1990 NHL Replay

I have created team labels for Strat O Matic sets, and also in the process of continuing to create them for all my sets of Baseball, Hockey, Football, and Basketball.

In doing so, I borrowed a lot of content from the painstaking work of others.  Information was taken from wikipedia as well as:

https://www.hockey-reference.com/https://www.pro-football-reference.com/https://www.baseball-reference.com/

As far as logos, uniforms, and other patches and flair, they can be found at: (check them out!)

The attached are pdfs of each season labels I have created.  Personally, I use Avery labels, and these are printed on 5″ x 7″ sheets.  You can do what you wish with them, but if they are printed larger, I am unsure what the resolution will look like.  When printing, make sure any ‘fit to page’ box is not checked.  I use Avery 5450 labels for these.  Some people have been able to print these labels directly on envelopes.
For card storage, I use #6 coin envelopes for older baseball seasons, #7 for hockey.  For seasons  that contain many extra players and pitchers’ hitting cards, the teams may get snug so I have moved to #7 coin envelopes other than older baseball sets.  I have found that over time, teams will kind of form the envelope to its size, but I cannot vouch for the long-term storage effects on the cards as I just starting using these last year.
I place the team in the envelope, then carefully put the label on.  I reinforce each side of the label with 1/2 strip of scotch tape (extending just past the corners) because the label will flare up where the envelope bends with the cards and it will lose adhesion.
When playing, I prop the cards up somewhere to add some more flair.  The baseball sets also have weather and ballpark information for quick reference.
Please contact me with any comments, concerns, corrections, or requests (although I am committed to finishing my sets first).  Contact

Full Summary

Hitters performed with more than 5,000 HR. But young pitching stole the show. Florida’s Josh Beckett shut out the Yankees in the final game of the World Series. Kerry Wood and Mark Prior were 1-2 in NL strikeouts and nearly got the Cubs into the Series for the first time since ’45. LA’s Eric Gagne had a record 55 saves and a 1.20 ERA while fanning far more (137 in 82 IP) than he let get on (57).

Full Summary

Last year, the Red Sox ended its World Series jinx since 1918. This time, the White Sox ended theirs dating to 1917, by sweeping Houston. Though the long-ball still dominated, the World Series combatants were the best at pitching and playing small-ball. After four prodigious seasons, St. Louis’ Albert Pujols finally won his first MVP award in his fifth by hitting .330-41-117. Can’t get enough? Here’s more.

Strat’s Description:

  • Penguin Power: Pittsburgh wins its first Stanley Cup
  • Golden Brett: MVP Hull scores 86 goals
  • Playoff Surprise: 68-point North Stars ascend to Cup Finals

Full Summary

The six carded teams in this set are Stanley Cup winner Pittsburgh, Stanley Cup finalist Minnesota, division winners Chicago (106 points), Los Angeles (102 points) and Boston (100 points) and Norris Division runner-up St. Louis (105 points). A utility permits printing the other teams. As always, the Windows version of this season will include all teams.

Five teams topped 100 points, but 88-point Pittsburgh won the Stanley Cup. Super Mario Lemieux played only 26 games in the regular season, scoring 19 goals and 45 points, but returned to play 23 playoff games, where he won the Conn Smythe Trophy for his 19-goal, 45-point performance. He had serious help from 40-goal scorers Mark Recchi and Kevin Stevens.

After the Penguins eliminated 100-point Boston to reach the Cup finals, they met with upstart Minnesota, a sub-.500 team. Edmonton, with the league’s top scorer in Wayne Gretzky (163 points), had sent Calgary and Los Angeles, the top two teams in its Smythe Division, home and Minnesota had done the same to the top two in its Norris Division, Chicago and St. Louis – then routed Edmonton in five games.

This season had many individual stars, too, especially Hart Trophy winner Brett Hull, whose 86 goals for St. Louis were the second most for a season in NHL history. Theoren Fluery, Cam Neely and Steve Yzerman each scored 51 goals; 16 others scored at least 40. Ten men topped 100 points.

Strat’s Description:

Highlights

  • Paint the Town Blue: St. Louis wins first Cup in historic playoff season
  • Lightning Flash: Tampa Bay wins 62 in season, none in playoffs
  • Lamplighters: 13 score 40+ goals in highest-scoring year ever

Full Summary

The NHL had never seen anything like it. First, all four division winners and six of the nine 100-point teams did not survive the first round of the playoffs. Tampa Bay’s historically great regular season (NHL record-tying 62 wins, league-best 325 goals) ended with a historically disastrous playoff (first team in the 52-year expansion era to fail to win a playoff game after leading the NHL in points).

That unequalled misery set the stage for the season’s feel-good ending: The St. Louis Blues, a last-place team on Jan. 1, won its first Stanley Cup in its first finals appearance since 1970, the early days of expansion.

The regular season offered plenty of individual highlights:

  • Alex Ovechkin leads the NHL in goals (51) again, but only one more than Edmonton’s Leon Draisaitl in a season that had the most goals in NHL history. Thirteen men scored at least 40 goals.
  • Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov won the Hart Trophy and the scoring title (41-87-128) above a group of six superstar 100-point men: Kucherov, Connor McDavid (116), Patrick Kane (110), Draisaitl (105), Brad Marchand (100) and Sidney Crosby (100).
  • Despite the flurry of goals, Dallas’ Ben Bishop’s .934 save percentage topped nine qualifiers with .922 or better.
  • Louis’ rookie goaltender, Jordan Binnington (.927 save percentage), led the NHL with a 1.89 goals-against-average, a bit better than Bishop’s 1.98, before starring in the Blues’ surge to the Cup.

Strat’s Description:

Highlights

  • Cardiac Cardinals: Classic comebacks capture NL crown, then World Series championship
  • Season of the Pitch: Verlander, Kershaw win pitching Triple Crowns in year of record Ks
  • Brains and Braun: Small-ball tactics, slugging MVP Ryan Braun lead offenses

Full Summary

Many called the final day of the 2011 season the most amazing pennant-race conclusions in baseball history. Atlanta and Boston suffered historic collapses. Tampa Bay’s Evan Longoria joined Bobby Thomson of the 1951 Giants as the only players to hit walk-off home runs on the season’s final day to send their teams into the post-season. And St. Louis completed its climb from eight games back in September. Then, in Manager Tony LaRussa’s swan song, the Cardinals topped that by becoming the first team to twice survive elimination when it was down to its final strike in the World Series. This was a terrible Texas Two-Step for the Rangers, who twice stumbled in its second straight World Series dance.

The final fireworks followed an explosive season that showcased Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit, Jim Thome’s 600thhome run, Matt Kemp’s near batting Triple Crown and the most spectacular pitching seen in decades. Detroit pitching ace Justin Verlander (24-8, 2.40, 250 Ks) was the American League MVP. He and Dodger Clayton Kershaw (21-5, 2.28, 248 Ks) won pitching Triple Crowns for leading their leagues in wins, ERA and strikeouts. Overall, runs, home runs and batting averages were at 20-year lows and strikeouts were at all-time highs. But 2011 had its share of tough outs: That Cardinals’ modern-day Murderer’s Row of Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday, Lance Berkman and David Freese, for instance. NL MVP Ryan Braun (.332-33-11) and slugging teammate Prince Fielder led Milwaukee to a division title. Toronto’s Jose Bautista (43 HR) and the Yankees’ Curtis Granderson (41) blasted away. Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera (.344) and the Mets’ Jose Reyes (.337) won batting crowns. Boston had batting title runner-up Adrian Gonzalez (.344) and MVP runner-up Jacoby Ellsbury (.321-32-105).

Strat Description:

Highlights

  • Mahomes, Chiefs outscore SF in Super Bowl
  • Lamar Jackson races to MVP award, leads Ravens to 14-2 record
  • Derrick Henry’s 1,540 yards carry Tennessee to AFC title game

Full Summary

The Individual Defensive Squares are no longer included with the purchase of a game or card set. This must be purchased separately.

In a season when seven teams won at least 11 games, the top-scoring team from each conference met in the Super Bowl. Playing in their first Super Bowl since 1969, when the Chiefs won in the last season of their American Football League, Patrick Mahomes passed for two fourth-quarter TDs to erase a 20-10 deficit.

The Baltimore Ravens flashed the NFL’s best record (14-2) thanks to flashy MVP QB Lamar Jackson, who combined explosive designed runs and scrambles (1,206 yards rushing, 6.9 avg) with a league-best 36 TD passes against just 6 interceptions.

Green Bay, with QB Aaron Rodgers (26 TD passes, 4 interceptions) and 19-TD RB Aaron Jones, also won 13 games, as did New Orleans, where QB Drew Brees (74.3% completions, 27 TD passes), RB Alvin Kamara (4.7 rush avg and 97 receptions) and WR Michael Thomas (149 catches), lead a team that scored 30+ points 11 times.

Tennessee RB Derrick Henry also emerged as a superstar, leading the NFL with 1,540 rush yards and tying Jones for the league lead with 16 rushing TDs. The Titans’ Ryan Tannehill led all QBs with a 117.3 passer rating.

* Robbing HR Rule (14.5) – An * to the left of the team name indicates that a home run CANNOT be robbed for a lefty batter. An * to the right of the team name indicates that a home run CANNOT be robbed for a righty batter. Note, this applies to all HR/Flyout splits, not just ballpark home run chances

HighlightsNationals Treasure: First World Series title in franchise history without a home victory

Home Run Derby: Rookie Alonso, Twins lead sluggers who shatter HR record

Pair of Aces: Astros Verlander, Cole win 20, fan 300+, 1-2 in AL ERA

Full Summary

The Washington Nationals, who did not even win their own division, won the World Series for the first time in franchise history dating to the 1969 Montreal Expos and did it in the first World Series when every game was won by the visiting team. In this ripe-for-replaying season like no other, most teams had a slugger or a group of sluggers who set franchise or Major-League records. After all, the 30 teams combined for the most home runs in history – 671 more than the prior record!

Only one man – the Mets’ Pete Alonso, who set the rookie record with 53 HR – but a record 28 men hit 35 and a record 43 hit 30. The Minnesota Twins set the all-time mark with 307 HR with a record eight men who hit at least 20. The Yankees hit 306, with a record 14 men reaching double-figure HR. Arizona and Philadelphia combined for a record 13 HR in one game. In one June week, two teams hit four consecutive HR, two pitchers gave up five in a game and two men hit for the cycle. That same week, Colorado’s Charlie Blackman had a record 15 hits for a four-game series, in which the Rockies and Padres set a record with 92 runs.

Though no pitcher was safe, many had remarkable seasons, especially while striking out a record number of batters – more strikeouts, in fact, than hits allowed. Cy Young winners Justin Verlander and Houston’s Gerrit Cole were the only 20-game winners, only the second pair of teammates to strike out 300 and were 1-2 in American League ERA. They, teammate Zack Greinke, St. Louis’s Jack Flaherty and the Mets’ Jacob DeGrom had WHIPS below 1.00, with nine other starters below 1.10.

A glittering rookie class that included Alonso, Fernando Tatis Jr., Yordan Alvarez, Keston Hiura, Victor Robles, Eloy Jimenez and pitchers Mike Soroka, Dakota Hudson, Chris Paddack and many more made big first impressions.
